  • A luxury glamping hut for two set within the heart of the island countryside

  • Just 4.5 miles from the seaside town of Sandown for those beach days
Property code: 89932

Prepare for a romantic stay to remember at this Nordic-style glamping hut tucked away off a quiet bridleway. This cosy and compact accommodation has room for two lovers keen to get away from it all and spend some quality time together. There’s a cosy wood burner for cuddling up on those chilly winter nights, plus plenty of scenic outdoor space for absorbing the clean countryside air. Ramblers and cyclists will all be in their element here – though with a BBQ, fire pit hut and private gazebo at your disposal, you’ll be forgiven for wanting to stay in!

On arrival, head up the steps to a small-but-perfectly-formed small space containing a sweet kitchen featuring a butler sink. There are a couple of armchairs for relaxing and the bed area nestled at one end. Floral prints, carefully placed lighting and tasteful artwork create a home-from-home atmosphere where you’ll adore curling up with a book or watching something on the Smart TV. Outside, there’s a private patio area for enjoying coffee for two, plus a good-sized lawn and, to one side, a fire pit hut with seating and cushions where you can chill out in the evenings.

When it’s time to roam out of your blissful idyll, you’ll be 1.5 miles from the nearest pub and 3.5 from shops – we told you it was rural! The hut is equidistant (4.5 miles) from the popular seaside resorts of Sandown and Ryde, both great options for days out by the coast. If ancient history’s your thing, don’t miss a trip to the Brading Roman Villa (4 miles) – or how about taking your loved one for a ride on the Isle of Wight steam railway (3.5 miles)?

Absolutely beautiful location with plenty of green space, seclusion and a real sun spot on the right day, but with plenty of options for shade. The finish of the Shepherds hut is incredibly good and the bed is so comfy, being king size. Excellent hosts and a great location on the Island to be able to reach all corners and attractions. The fire hut Read moreis a big bonus for those who love to cook on open fires. Excellent produce around locally as well and loads of walks and nature everywhere. Book now! Hide

Amazing little hideaway! Really peaceful location. Owners were super friendly, and made sure the hut was well equipped, even down to a bottle of red!! Summerhouse was a wonderful place to sit in the evenings, and the area was beautiful. Well worth a visit, especially for wildlife lovers!! If your really lucky you may even see a mole!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is briliant: in the quiet countryside, with easy access to everywhere on the island. Our hosts, Ollie and Rachel are very warm and welcoming and have a wealth of knowledge about places to visit, the best places to eat, etc. All in all, it was an excellent week, providing us with many happy memories!

The woodland location was particularly stunning for us- to be woken by the sound of the cuckoo was very special. But to be able to walk on such a variety of footpaths directly from the hut was also stunning. The shepherds hut was the perfect bolt hole. We loved the interior decor & the facilities on offer- everything had been very carefully plannedRead more & organised. The attention to detail was fabulous. Dark skies and such an eclectic range of bird life in an AONB made the holiday very special. Hide
